The “winner” of Brad Womack’s season of The Bachelor is poised to be ABC’s next Bachelorette, sources at the show tell People.com. Womack and Maynard ended their engagement last summer — thus qualifying her for “bachelorette” status — and although she was reluctant to appear on the femme-fronted dating series because she didn’t want to be away from her daughter, the celeb site hears that ABC offered to move the production to her hometown of Charlotte, N.C.
But wait, there’s more. People.com also hears that Bentley Williams (who burned Bachelorette Ashley Hebert, saying he thought he “signed up to be with Emily”) is interested in competing for the Southern belle’s heart.
Asked to comment, an ABC spokesperson told TVLine that The Bachelorette is not yet confirming or announcing any casting for its next season.
What do you make of this Bachelorette buzz, fans? Is Emily kinda sorta too nice and gentle to drum up over-the-top drama?
